    Hey guys, so I recently built my first computer and am having issues with freezing. I've tried running some diagnostics on my computer and whenever I do a stress test it will freeze before the test can finish. My build is...

    CPU: AMD 8350
    GPU: MSI GTX 1060 gaming x
    MoBo: Asus M5A78L-M Plus
    8 gigs of RAM
    PSU: Corsair TX750M

    I feel like I should mention too that I did have trouble when first setting it up and installed Windows 10 Pro when I bought Windows 10 Home and reloaded the OS several times when trying to fix it. I've checked the Ram already and didn't find any errors. As well as the PSU which is outputting fine. I've also tried reapplying the thermal paste to the heat sink to see if heating was the issue but I never generally see it hit about 47 degrees when I'm watching but during the stress test it was around 53 degrees that it froze.

    The game it has been freezing on is Overwatch.

    is the RAM you are using on the QVL list of supported RAM for the motherboard? You can check this on the website of the motherboard under the "Support" section.

    I did a comparision check and it looks like the RAM all checks out though I did a diagnostic and system check and found that of the 8 gigs I have avaliable, I really only have 4.81 gigs at my disposal and of those 4.81, Overwatch uses 4. Could that be an issue?
